Congratulations to Steve Tapp who won the Black Pearl UL kite being raffled to support ODSKC!
It's time to elect new Flyer's Reps! All current Eastern League members are eligible for election, and should head over to our elections page to cast your vote for two reps. These reps serve on the Eastern League board and have a vote in all board decisions. The election will close on July 31, 2016.
I'll be working with Shirley Husz at It's a Breeze Specialties to get jacket order information out shortly; just as a reminder, this year's criteria for award jackets is "40+ points, 2+ events," and we've reworked the rules around standings that instead of keeping all five of your event point totals, we only use your best three. This year, the award jackets should more closely reward the most talented flyers, not the flyers who attend the most events. As a reminder, the league will cover the full cost of the jacket + embroidery this year for all fleece jackets, if you'd like to upgrade to a three-season jacket, you'll just pay the price difference over the fleece option.
My thanks to Augustus Martin, Jack Wilson, Kitty Hawk Kites, Lisa Willoughby, Dennis Smith, Joe Fala at Windworks, Maggie Engvall, Jay Knerr at the Kite Loft, Will Smoot, and Frazer Worley, who all served as event coordinators and chief judges for the 2016 season. My job is made considerably easier by your efforts, and you're all helping to keep sport kiting alive and relevant.

The Eastern League Sport Kite Association would like to thank Joe Fala for his role in bringing a great event together. Thanks to Windworks, the Thunderbird Beach Resort and all of the sponsors for supporting The 19th Annual Treasure Island Kite Festival and Sport Kite Competition.
A special thank you goes to all of the kite flyers, competitors, volunteers, spectators, spouses, partners, and families. Once again because you shared your love of kite flying, your time, your energy and your smiles, this year’s event was another success.
